The ChartTitle class implements the functionality of an individual chart title in a chart control.

A chart control's titles are stored within the ChartControl.Titles collection, represented by an instance of the ChartTitleCollection class.

A particular chart title is available via the ChartTitleCollection.Item property of the collection using indexer notation.

Examples

This example demonstrates how chart titles can be accessed and customized at runtime.

// Create chart titles.
ChartTitle chartTitle1 = new ChartTitle();
ChartTitle chartTitle2 = new ChartTitle();

// Define the text for the titles.
chartTitle1.Text = "<i>Basic</i> <b>HTML</b> <u>is</u> <color=blue>supported</color>.";
chartTitle2.Text = "The capability to word-wrap is available for chart titles.";

chartTitle2.WordWrap = true;
chartTitle2.MaxLineCount = 2;

// Define the alignment of the titles.
chartTitle1.Alignment = StringAlignment.Center;
chartTitle2.Alignment = StringAlignment.Near;

// Place the titles where it's required.
chartTitle1.Dock = ChartTitleDockStyle.Top;
chartTitle2.Dock = ChartTitleDockStyle.Bottom;

// Customize a title's appearance.
chartTitle1.Antialiasing = true;
chartTitle1.Font = new Font("Tahoma", 14, FontStyle.Bold);
chartTitle1.TextColor = Color.Red;
chartTitle1.Indent = 10;

// Add the titles to the chart.
